Apartments all, in five neighborhoods

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount in various Austin neighborhoods. Is one person’s studio another person’s townhouse? Let’s find out! Today’s price: $975/month.

Settler’s Ridge, 12800 Harrisglenn Drive, one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, 657 square feet, $975/month. A decent-sized unit in a medium-sized Far North complex, this apartment has high ceilings, a built-in wine rack, marble bathroom counter tops, and amenities including valet trash pick-up, a fitness center, and a game room.

1611 West 39-1/2 Street Apt. 104, studio apartment, one bathroom, $975/month. The listing for this updated studio apartment in Rosedale doesn’t provide a square footage that seems accurate, but we’re guessing it’s around 625 square feet. It faces the Shoal Creek greenbelt (across the street) and has a private patio, insulated windows, faux wood blinds, a ceiling fan, a breakfast bar, and two walk-in closets. Owner pays water, gas and trash; tenant pays electric. Up to two cats allowed.

2302 East Side Drive, Apt. 16, one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo apartment, 482 square feet, $975/month. This apartment is in a gated condo complex on the northern edge of Travis Heights. The unit comes with one parking space, concrete floors in the common areas and carpet in the bedroom, as well as washer and dryer.

The Reserve at Walnut Creek, 8038 Exchange Drive, one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, 730 square feet, $981/month. The apartment is located in a Northeast Austin complex that takes its cues from the surrounding business parks by creating a campus/park-like atmosphere. In addition to a pet area, the grounds have a pool, barbecue area, a playscape, and outdoor storage space.

Array Apartments, 2101 Burton Drive Apt. 246, one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, 747 square feet, $975/month. This colorfully staged unit is in a large, updated complex in the East Riverside-Oltorf. Units have laminate wood floors, patios or balconies, and access to a pool, a pet park, and common lounging areas.
